I weighed in Wednesday and the scale said I lost a pound. ...How is that possible? Now I'm expecting the craziness from last weekend to show up next week, or something. In any case, I've lost 30 pounds! It's almost surreal to me to think that ju... Read more

Trying really hard to get back on track, now. Tomorrow's the official weigh-in day and with a mix of pre-menstrual bloating and carb overload of last weekend this will be the first week since I started SparkPeople that I've gained weight. I'm no... Read more

This weekend was a complete mess! On Friday I came down with some sort of stomach flu and couldn't keep anything down all day (I had an interview in the middle of say it wasn't fun is an understatement). Then at dinner I decided to rea... Read more

This week: -1.6 Total weight loss: 28 lbs The past three days or so I've been craving really, really unhealthy food. For about a day I promised myself I'd be a teetotaler and not touch anything...and then I remembered that completely deny... Read more

I was talking to my mom on the phone the other day and the subject turned to our respective weight loss journeys. My mom weighed just over 200 lbs and has lost about 50 lbs since January 1 of this year, and is probably the most active she's been... Read more
